Face masks have now been made mandatory in enclosed spaces in many countries worldwide. They must even be worn outdoors in cities that are particularly affected by coronavirus infections. Mask-wearing has shaken up many aspects of our daily lives, right down to our beauty regimes.
From makeup to facial care and product textures, not to mention acne-zapping products, here's a look at some of the changes face masks are bringing to your bathroom and your makeup bag, all in spite of the latest trends.
No makeup: from dream to reality
While plenty of celebrities, such as Alicia Keys, embraced the "no makeup" face well before the global pandemic, lockdown has changed the game profoundly, offering people a real opportunity to accept themselves without makeup.
A global trend that has visibly transcended borders given the proliferation of hashtags like "#nomakeup," "#nomakeupday," "#nomakeupchallenge" or "#nomakeupselfie" that have swamped social media this year, all accompanied by pictures showing the world that self-acceptance is today more than just a theory.
